Another type has raised dots to indicate obstacles ahead or change in direction, which is called warning tactile paving or orientation tactile paving. The last type is danger warning tactile paving, with larger dots to warn not to exceed and that there may be danger ahead.

The use of Braille tactile paving

Braille tactile paving is produced according to the size specifications stipulated in the national industry standard. It has excellent design, sensitive tactile sensation, strong corrosion resistance, abrasion resistance, and long service life. The surface of this high-strength plastic and rubber Braille tactile paving is not only beautiful but also smooth, suitable for indoor or outdoor decoration. The raised patterns not only make the tactile paving safer but also beautify the environment.

It is mainly used for paving on urban roads, railway stations, bus stations, subway platforms, intercity railways, and sidewalks. It is a dedicated facility for guiding disabled people to walk safely without barriers.
